Mica, Blueberry

Availability: In stock



Blueberry Brite Mica is a lively blue and has replaced the Pop Mica of the same name.   Great for mineral make up, and in lip balm of course, Blueberry Mica is great in all applications.  Blueberry Mica exhibits a medium level of sheen and is stable in CP and MP Soap.

The Blueberry Mica is lagging behind the rest of our Pop Mica replacements as we wanted to be REALLY sure it was going to hold up in Cold Process Soap.  Our tests were done six months ago, and the photo of the soap is that very one!

For accurate measuring of Micas (especially if blending for Mineral Makeup) we stock Pigment Scoops.

Our Test Results:

Produces a pearlescent brght blue colour in clear MP Soap Base and a pastel baby blue tone with no shimmer in white MP Soap Base.  In CP produces a good depth of colour at fair concentration or more pastel if used at lower concentration.  If you want a popping blue, amp up the concentration!
pH sensitivity:  Stable in high pH  products such as CP Soap
Colour Fading: This colour is not light sensitive and not prone to fading
Colour Bleeding (Migration): Non bleeding, suitable for embedding, layering and swirling
Micas can be mixed in a little Fragrance, Alcohol, Water or Oil to moisten before use – Oil is the easiest for Micas.  This will minimise clumping and/or speckling.  

Note: Our Micas  are packed in resealable vials, tubs or jars unless purchasing 500g and above or surplus stock.
